On Thursday, September 28, the Upper School community participated in a day of special programming focused on service to the community and bonding with each other outside of the classroom. The 9th grade students gathered with their Peer Group triads and boarded a bus for the Princeton Battlefield where they spent the day. The 10th graders spent the morning cleaning and clearing the section of the Princeton Green Trail that goes through our campus. The 11th grade students met and boarded a bus for the Washington Crossing Park for activities in the morning. And the 12th grade students stayed on campus to assemble donations and decorate lunches for the Loaves & Fishes' Annual Thanksgiving Lunch.
The School was also pleased to welcome Sergeant Thomas Rich back to campus today to speak to 10th grade students, as well as 5th & 6th grade students about social media and cyber safety. Officer Rich visited the Princeton Day School a few years ago and educated students, faculty and the greater community about digital responsibility and safety. Please visit his website for more information.
The day ended with the Kona Ice truck on campus, offering our students a cool treat after their day of service. Here are some photos from the day.
